Safety always

We are committed to providing a safe work environment and we expect our employees to work proactively to eliminate all risks.

Our strict code of conduct for good working practice is built on 'Key Safe Behaviours' which we expect and demand our operatives to follow at all times.


Protect others with barriers, warning signs, fans etc.

Safe system of work

Work to the Risk Assessment and Method Statement (RAMs), work safely and to SG4:15


Keep your work area tidy, with no trip hazards

Personal protective equipment (PPE)

Wear full PPE — including helmet, safety boots, Hi-Vis clothing, gloves (and harness if trained)

Our safety culture is underpinned by documented and accredited management systems. We hold externally recognised accreditations for our management systems which are audited on a regular basis both internally and externally.
